FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Three Fort Wayne schools are collecting jeans for homeless teens.
The public can donate new or gently used jeans at North Side High School, 475 E. State Blvd.; Northrop High School, 7001 Coldwater Road; or Portage Middle School, 3521 Taylor St.
The project is part of DoSomething.org, a national non-profit organization for young people who take action in social change.
The three schools that collect the most jeans will receive a grant. The top school will get $3,000, while second place will earn $2,000 and third 3rd will get $1,000. Every two pairs of jeans a student collects earns them a chance to win a $5,000 scholarship.
The drive will end Feb. 19 at Northrop. North Side and Portage will continue collecting donations until Feb. 26.
